Thanks to the fine blog Instructify, I’ve learned about a pretty neat mapping tool called Show/World.
I’d encourage you to read Instructify’s post about it, but, basically, at Show/World you pick a topic (use of the death penalty, military forces, etc.) and then countries in a world map magically transform themselves into different sizes depending on their rank in that topic .
It’s very accessible to English Language Learners.
I’ve place the link on my Geography page.
If you like SHOW World, you’ll love our new site, SHOW USA. We have hundreds of maps about the 50 states, with more to come:
We also have a new lesson plan for using both the World and USA sites in the classroom:
